Welcome to Andy Levy Wood Sculptor
I am a wood sculptor based in the beautiful English Lake District creating sculptures in wood using traditional wood sculpting skills and also with my chainsaw(s) creating what are now known as chainsaw carvings. I work from a small studio which lies on the southern edge of the lakes and I am never far away from wood – well you wouldn’t be if you are a wood sculptor.
I am a third generation craftsman descending from a long line of craftsmen and artists with my father still creating bespoke wood carvings and wood based creations amongst many other things. It was inevitable that I would follow in the family tradition and all those years spent with my father in his workshop are now complemented with my modern-day qualifications as a joiner. I love working with wood and being amongst nature where a great deal of my inspirations for my wood sculptures come from.
I was introduced (safely I may add) to chainsaw’s when I was in my late teens and helped a local handyman who often felled and removed trees. I loved using the chainsaw to create some of my early chainsaw carvings (can be seen here) and I enjoyed being out in amongst nature so it was a natural progression for me to study for my “RFS certificate in arboriculture“. The more I used the Chainsaw the more I was drawn to using it to create chainsaw sculptures and I have become very proficient with its use and use it in many of my wood sculptures.
I am constantly learning and experimenting with the various native sustainable materials I have at my disposal and I am always looking for new ways to create interesting and unique sculptures.
I hope that you enjoy my site – it’s hoped that over time it will become a treasure of wood sculptures and chainsaw carvings. Please sign up to the news letter and like me on ‘Facebook’ so that you can see new creations as they are completed.
Thanks for visiting
